In Biloxi, Mississippi, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark L. Walberg joins appraiser Beth Szescila at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art to discuss how the beauty of the southern landscape and its creatures inspired the paintings and prints of this prolific, 20th-century Mississippi native.
Highlights include a suit worn by Olivia de Haviland in the 1943 film "Princess O’Rourke"; a circa 1890 French industrial clock; and four 1827 watercolor portraits attributed to “The Guilford Limner,” a mysterious North Carolina-based artist who never signed his work, valued conservatively at $60,000.
